Piazza delle Erbe is the oldest square in Verona. There is an interesting fountain in the square that was built in 1368 but is topped with a Roman sculpture called Madonna Verona from 380 AD. There is also a tall white column topped with a St. Mark’s Lion, the symbol of Venice. Verona was part of the Republic of Venice from the 15th to the 18th century. The square is located near Juliet’s House.
This shopping centre wouldn't be out of place in most western countries; certainly most of the retail outlets are well-known international brand names including the anchor tenants, Primark, H&M and Zara. My wife I did think the supermarket was fairly average compared to the excellent Esselunga just down the road. But if these kind of malls float your boat then fill your boots. It's certainly well-designed (and clean) with a large underground carpark. My initial thought was I'd love to see the numbers in terms of how it's sustainable financially in terms of capital cost and operating costs, given that for it's size and design excellence there seems surprisingly few outlets.
Nice mall with different kind of stores (clothing, electronics, supermarket, etc.). Its central location invites for a quick visit. But also you can spend hours there. Also open on Sundays, definitely also an alternative for a rainy day.
I am not an “art lover” but I really enjoyed this museum/gallery. There are so many different types of artworks and they are beautifully arranged and displayed. There are descriptions of each room (in Italian and English) and descriptions of the artworks themselves. The view from the rooftop is very lovely
My friend and I visited the store as I had seen some lovely bags I wanted to purchase. Upon entering the store a store colleague watched us walk in, then literally followed about 5ft behind us around the store. When I voiced that he was making me uncomfortable he tried saying he was going to explain that there were more items upstairs. I told him that could have been said upon entry but he still decided to follow us obscenely close as though we were going to steal items!! He still didn’t back off and continued to follow us to the door as I felt that uncomfortable I was definitely not going to purchase anything in there!! Absolutely disgusting customer service!! Went to a competitor store and bought a lovely Karl Largerfeld bag instead!!
We were so pleased to find this lovely café with an inconspicuous entry in a side street near the Piazza delle Erbe. The staff were very friendly and we ate some lovely cakes - the best blueberry muffin my husband had every tasted and I ate a delicious nut crocant with a pistachio filling.
What a difference is La Dama as winery in Valpolicella, here is a balance with nature - no pesticides – a wine that I trust – a quality that I did not find with other winery’s in this region as professional in 15 years of wine tasting as a sommelier and importer in the NL and with also the Italians sommelier diploma. Excellent wine – excellent understanding and we do not have to speak to feel the love – for the wine – for the people behind it. No business relationship – it feels like family. There are many good Amarones when you taste them – but as long as is not clear how the wine is made – knowing that pesticides are much used in this region, I do not trust the not Bio wines. Whatever the makers say…. Choose organic and La Dama was recognized as the first with a gold medal in Montpellier on the world leading Bio fair. What more do you need? La Dama is our most important and most trusted winery.
